The Addis Ababa Action Agenda on Financing for Development contains six explicit references to persons with disabilities and disability, one to "inclusive education", one to inclusive learning environment" and two to "accessible" technologies and infrastructure. 

 

On 18-20 April 2016, the United Nations (UN) is holding the inaugural Forum on Financing for Development follow-up, which will discuss how to take forward the commitments in the Addis Ababa Action Agenda (as well as earlier global agreements on financing for development). 

 

The International Disability Alliance (IDA) and International Disability and Development Consortium (IDDC) have prepared a short position paper, which sets out our key recommendations for the Financing for Development follow-up process, for this April's Forum and beyond.

 

The position paper is available in PDF and Word formats:
